Where are you from and what inspired you to become a television writer?

I was born in LA, but raised in Santa Barbara, CA. I always thought I would be a feature writer, but when I was an assistant to a Showrunner, I figured I would give writing a spec a shot. After directing reality TV for a few years, I really enjoyed the fast pace of TV production. …I’m a total TV convert now.

What Spec did you write while you were in the workshop?

Who is your all time favorite television character and why?
